Here's a show I'd like to see at Alltel Arena

This came in late yesterday from the publicist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but no set locations for the tour yet, though I have heard some rumbling ... :


LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16, 2006 -- Red Hot Chili Peppers and Gnarls Barkley will hit the road together for three months (January to March) in early 2007, playing arenas across the United States.  Specific dates will be announced shortly.

The Chili Peppers launched their current U.S. tour to much praise in August, in support of their critically acclaimed double album STADIUM ARCADIUM.  Produced by Rick Rubin, the album debuted in May at #1 in 28 countries around the world, including topping the Billboard 200 on their home turf. Thus far the album has spawned a pair of #1 Modern Rock hits "Dani California" and "Tell Me Baby." 
Gnarls Barkley, the combination of Grammy-winning producer Danger Mouse and superstar vocalist Cee-Lo Green, released their debut ST.ELSEWHERE CD this year to critical acclaim.  Their first single, "Crazy" garnered more radio format play than any single in U.S. radio history -- with nine radio formats and a U.S. radio audience of nearly 100 million.  A top five album in almost every country in Europe, the band was recently nominated for two MTV Europe Music Awards for best song and best video.  ST. ELSEWHERE is currently on its way to double platinum sales in the U.S. 
Safe to say it will be a powerful concert bill.
STADIUM ARCADRIUM is the ninth studio album from the Chili Peppers.  All told, the band has sold more than 50 million albums, logged seven multiplatinum CDs and earned a record-setting ten # 1 Modern Rock hits.

They also continue to ride the crest of the ongoing awards season, topping nominations for the 13th annual MTV Europe Music Awards with best rock act, best group, best album and best song for "Dani California." The band also tied for most nominations for the 2006 American Music Awards where they are up for Pop/Rock nominations for favorite and, duo or group, favorite album and favorite artist in the Alternative Music category. Additionally, Chili Peppers have been nominated for the 2006 mtvU Woodie Awards on MTV's 24-hour college network for Alumni Woodie (aka The You're Still OK in our Book Award). 
Gnarls Barkley is currently preparing a limited edition deluxe package of ST. ELSEWHERE for release November 7.  The CD+DVD package includes a 92 page booklet, four music videos and bonus songs from live performances. 
Gnarls also recently released a video for their second single, a cover of the Violent Femmes classic "Gone Daddy Gone."

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
